a beautiful and sharp picture of this colourful and light reflecting bug.
You professionally managed these reflections. The whole picture appears admirably natural
with respect to colours and light.This is underlined by the composition and selected display window.
Focus, sharpness and depth of field are excellent.
Best wishes, Peter

Indeed, it is beautiful! The colours are absolutely superb, but a beautiful bug yet doesn't mean a beautiful picture. The expert eye and know how of the photographer makes the difference. You once again proof your qualities as an outstanding photographer with this composition and the perfect sharpness and lighting.

Nice and very colourful presentation. This insect was presented by you before, but in rather different composition. I like free space on its left side and very good sharpness.
All the best from Lodz my Friend!

These Jewel bugs are of great beauty. I noticed also that the shape was different from the ones we usually see on TN. Beautiful green on green picture. You managed the light very well, the reflections on the bug's shield are just right. Very well done as usual.

Sumon, I have been wanting to look at this species with a bit of concentration. I am comparatively free this afternoon, so I thought I would gaze at this bug and admire it at my own pace.
You are right; it does not look like the Jewel Bug but has the same colouring. And it is definitely longer. The body shape suggests a beetle, but I cannot be fully sure. I will perhaps go with Ivan; it could be a different species of Jewel Bug.
The image is sharp as a razor. There is not the slightest colour exaggeration and the perforated leaf provides a wonderful BG.
Now that I have seen the simple camera and the magician behind it with my own eyes, I am able to declare with great satisfaction that this highly creative work has made my day.
Thanks and regards.
